Ex-priest jailed for abuse

Sky News

A former Catholic priest who abused three Victorian schoolboys in the 1960s will spend another four months behind bars.

James Patrick Jennings, 81, indecently assaulted the boys while a priest at Bendigo’s St Vincent’s College in the 1960s.

He was jailed on Wednesday for three years, but two-and-a-half years of the term was suspended.

The sentence takes into account the two months he has already served in jail before his sentencing, meaning he will serve four more months.
